11:35 pm
>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight, one direction. from "how to get away with murder," tom verica. celebrities read mean tweets. and music from jessie j featuring 2 chainz. with cleto and the cletones. and now, here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: hi, everybody, i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for coming.
11:36 pm
your enthusiasm is noted and appreciated. hey, guess who's on the show tonight? one direction is here. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that doesn't seem so important right now because apparently someone is being murdered. all five members of one direction are here. why do girls scream when they see their favorite pop stars? do you think it's genetic? i wonder if millions of years ago there was some handsome neanderthal playing a gourd and all the neanderthal women went ah! in any event, it's very exciting. i've already fainted nine times. lots of people have lined up in the alley in the back of our studio. it's like tween skid row out there. one young woman who has been here since last night, actually she came yesterday afternoon, like, what are you doing here? she's like i'm going to sleep over.
11:37 pm
she left in the alley overnight, not even to come into the show. he's hoping to see one direction get out of the car and come inside which is like three feet of seeing them. after this she's headed to camp outside walmart for black friday. she might be homeless for all i know. but let's just take a deep breath and collect ourselves and pace ourselves. one direction will be out shortly. from "how to get away with murder," tom verica is here and we have music from jessie j. and 2 chainz tonight. who knows where this night might take us. we also have something going on in front of our theatre. here in l.a. we don't have snow, but we do have celebrities so we came up with something fun. i think it's fun. let's go out to hollywood boulevard right now where our kim kardashian snow blower is standing by. isn't that lovely? we imported snow from somewhere. all right, is it jammed?
11:38 pm
this is an 18-inch, 13.5 amplified -- all right. you know, not all jobs in hollywood are glamorous. what is going on out there? i feel like i'm judging a 4h event. don't lose your wedding ring in there. that would be hard to explain. we'll work on that. even kim kardashian's snow blower doesn't work. what? [ laughter ] you're right, she works real hard. president obama gave a speech on immigration tonight, and none of the big four tv networks aired it. even television wants to distance itself from president obama now. cbs, fox, nbc and abc all chose not to interrupt their regularly scheduled primetime programming
11:39 pm
tonight. here at abc we're only interested in the president if he's having sex with olivia pope. i'm sure all the networks will be there to cover it when he pardons the turkey. this is fun, people tell me when they meet me that i look different in real life than i do on tv and i'm never sure if it's a compliment or not, probably not. we decided to have a bit of fun with that. we posted a sign in front of our studio that said take a photo with jimmy kimmel. people lined up to take a photo with me, but me wasn't me. we brought in a guy who kind of looks like me. i wanted to see if anyone noticed. you snow? i think the best words i can use to describe this experiment is inexplicable. >> are you guys fans of jimmy kimmel? >> we are, yes. >> are you excited to meet him? >> yeah, this is a spur of the moment thing. we had to jump in.
11:40 pm
>> never met a celebrity so kind of star struck. >> this is our photographer jack. >> hi. taylor, nice to meet you, i'm jack. nice to meet you. bring you guys right over here on the couch. this is jimmy. >> hi, what is your name? >> taylor. >> nice to meet you, taylor. >> paloma. >> nice to meet you. have a seat. >> thank you. are you guys big fans of the show? >> we are. >> what's your favorite part? they'll take pictures. >> the mean celebrity tweets. that's my favorite. >> are you guys on twitter? >> absolutely. >> right over here, guys. >> good. >> all right. >> cool. >> wait --
11:41 pm
>> jimmy: everything all right? >> no. i totally thought that was somebody else at first. >> jimmy: what was? are you guys on drugs? >> one more, guys. >> you guys watch the show? >> we do. you look a little different. >> it's television. >> okay. the camera adds like four or five inches of height. >> right here, guys. right here. big smiles. there we go. okay, guys. right here, big smiles, big smiles. say cheese. >> ah! >> i'm like, why are you doing this? >> jimmy: you didn't believe it? >> no. >> jimmy: i thought it was pretty close. what set you off? >> his face. >> jimmy: i told you not to use
11:42 pm
that face. >> are you excited to meet jimmy kimmel? >> of course i am. >> tell me why. >> he's iconic. has a great show. i think he's fantastic and i watch him a lot. >> this is jimmy. >> hi, guys, how are you. >> jodi. >> nice to meet you. have a seat, guys. can i get jodi over here. >> what is my favorite part. >> the kyra sedgwick thing the other night. >> that was really good. tell me again what happened. >> with kyra? the smoking part, that was funny. >> right here, guys. right here. awesome. look to the left real quick.
11:43 pm
>> jimmy: good to meet you guys. >> you, too, thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> jimmy: did you guys sense anything was wrong when you were taking pictures before? >> no. nothing happened. >> jimmy: you're not policemen, i hope. >> no. i'm a lawyer though. >> jimmy: really? >> right here, guys. >> is he doing rabbit ears? i have an 8-year-old who likes to do that. >> it was great meeting you. >> nice meeting you, too. go sun devils. thank you. nice to meet you. thank you. >> thanks a lot. very nice to meet you. >> what just happened? >> i have no idea. that was the most bizarre thing ever. >> those are the two least observant people on the planet.
11:44 pm
[ cheers and applause ] i'm not even sure i am me. they were lawyers. all right, let's check back in with the kim kardashian snow blower which i believe we have working now. let's fire it up and blow some snow! that's kind of sad. it's really going. that's a good way to get your son to shovel the driveway. i'm planning to give one of these to kanye for christmas. all right, well, i think we get it. the joke will be on us when she makes $10 million selling those somewhere. kim kardashian's rear end generated a lot of attention this week, some of it negative attention. people are quick to tweet unflattering things but it's
11:45 pm
important to remember that everyone has feelings. so from time to time we ask famous people to read some of the not so nice things that are tweeted about them. these are all -- what you're about to see, they're all actual tweets written by what i assume are actual people, misspellings and everything and there are a lot of them. it's time now for our 8th edition of mean tweets.

11:47 pm
>> john stamos has a gross belly button. shut the [ bleep ] up. i don't have that. he's right. >> i hope you all have a great weekend, except you, lisa kudrow.

character, but your character is alive through -- really your character is kind of a crappy guy in general. would you agree with that? >> i don't know. >> jimmy: doesn't have a lot of redeeming qualities. is that a fun thing to play or are you like, i wish he could be a little nicer? >> i've played a lot of nice guy roles, so when pete, who is the creator, when we started talking about the character and what it was, he said we're going to turn this character pretty dark and do some things that may not make him likable. as an actor and knowing that i have a day job at "scandal," i knew there was an endgame and my run would be pretty limited, but i thought it to be a great opportunity. >> jimmy: people who watch the show hate you? >> yeah, i think after last week's episode there was a specific moment that kind of turned. i think through the lies of this character which was kind of a
12:27 am
challenge as i got the script each week to say i'm not lying about this and i found out the next week that i was, it kind of reached a point and the character made a decision in last week's episode that i think pretty much cut off everybody. i get a lot of hate tweets and -- >> jimmy: do people approach you personally? >> they do. >> jimmy: great. >> i take my son to school every morning and i go to drop off and i'm getting a lot of really kind of crooked looks from many of the moms and people who know me at the school say i love you but i really hate you. >> jimmy: it's just a character, i don't write it. i guess that's a compliment for an actor. for people to hate you every week. >> i took my son to the laker game last weekend. this guy and his girlfriend came down and said oh, my gosh, are you tom from "how to get away with murder?" i said sam, the character.
12:28 am
he said would you please take a picture with my girlfriend. i said sure. so we take a picture and he pulls back and says that's great. i'm not going to take a picture of you because i don't like your character. i'm with my son who looks up and says who's that guy? but i found it interesting that the guy didn't want to take the picture with me. i figured he would be high-fiving me. >> jimmy: no. he's got a strong moral compass. you mentioned a moment ago that you're from philadelphia. >> that's correct. >> jimmy: and when you were living in philadelphia you were on a local television show there. this is a show kelly ripa was on as well when she was just a kid. >> yeah. >> jimmy: and of course as we are known to do, we found some video footage. what is the name of this show? >> oh, boy. i was in high school. this was a local dance show called "dancing on air." >> jimmy: awesome. >> it was in -- i won't say what year it was although you probably figured it out. it ran -- i was in the very beginning of the seasons, and my
12:29 am
sister really wanted to get on the show so i went down and begged and pleaded and got her in, and wanted to meet women on the show. yeah, it was -- >> jimmy: well, let's take a look. >> wait a minute. >> jimmy: that's you. is your sister in there somewhere, too? [ cheers and applause ] oh, look at that. >> oh, my god. >> jimmy: did you have fans as a result of that? like did people recognize you like, hey? >> i'm a little stunned in seeing that. i haven't seen it for quite some time. it was a fairly popular show in the tri-state area. yeah, it was -- there were many fans of that show. >> jimmy: i'm glad we got to share that with america. >> thank you for that. >> jimmy: you're welcome. tom verica, everybody.
